Psychiatric Professors Have Just Reached Out To President Obama To Administer A Mental Evaluation For Donald Trump
It’s no surprise by now that Trump seems to have some loose screws. It’s extremely difficult to be able to come up with excuses on why he does the things he does. It makes you question his mental stability, and if he’s even mentally fit to be the president of the most powerful country in the world.
Three psychiatric professors, Judith Herman from Harvard, and Nanette Gartrell and Dee Mosbacher from the University of California, wrote President Barrack Obama a letter. It stated that President-elect Donald Trump should undergo a full medical and neuropsychiatric evaluation. And millions of people in American and around the world also coincide with their request.
In their letter to Obama they wrote about their “grave concern regarding the mental stability of our President-Elect.” However, to remain ethical, they also said “Professional standards do not permit us to venture a diagnosis for a public figure whom we have not evaluated personally.” This point was also stated earlier this year by the American Psychiatric Association that said, “The unique atmosphere of this year’s election cycle may lead some to want to psychoanalyze the candidates, but to do so would not only be unethical, it would be irresponsible.”
They went on to continue their plea:
His widely reported symptoms of mental instability — including grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to slights or criticism, and an apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality — lead us to question his fitness for the immense responsibilities of the office. We strongly recommend that, in preparation for assuming these responsibilities, he receive a full medical and neuropsychiatric evaluation by an impartial team of investigators.
Unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world, and President Obama does not hold the power to enforce such actions. But millions of us agree that the state of mind of Donald Trump is something that should not be taken lightly. His future actions could mean disaster for not only the U.S. but for the world itself.
